Argh Author: Gin Jones’s Rhubarb Pie Before You Die

Gin has another garlic mystery out today, Rhubarb Pie Before You Die (Garlic Farm Mystery #2):

Inheriting her late aunt’s Massachusetts farm is no gift for app developer Mabel Skinner, who is about to learn that even the best-grown garlic can’t ward off murderous intent. . .

Mabel’s hope of finding an enthusiastic farmer to buy Stinkin’ Stuff Farm is dying a little bit every day. So far, all she’s found are double-dealing developers. But after a heated dispute over grass clippings with an obsessive local rhubarb breeder, she discovers something even more distressing—the breeder in question undisputedly dead in his greenhouse.

Uncomfortably aware that she might be a prime suspect, Mabel stops digging in the dirt long enough to dig up more information about the dead man, and anyone else he might have argued with. The list is longer than she imagined, and includes a persnickety neighbor and a rival rhubarb breeder. With all the ingredients for a homegrown mystery, Mabel must unearth a killer—before the next plot to be dug is her grave. . . .

“Growing garlic might be my newest obsession thanks to Six Cloves Under!”
—Lynn Cahoon, New York Times bestselling author of the Farm-to-Fork mystery series

  1. Yay, congrats Gin!!!

    I must admit, I really enjoy growing garlic. Mainly because the leaves are so good in so many things! 🤭 Garlic is a tasty by-product.

  2. I’m on chapter 6 right now and looking forward to reading after my evening chores are done.

    I pre-ordered your book when it became available on Amazon and it popped up on my Kindle at midnight. I was so happy to see it as I was reading another book whose protagonist was getting on my last nerve. I gave up on her when I knew I could catch up on what was happening with Mabel and Pixie.

    As a side note, I’m enjoying the rhubarb lore as my grandmother had a rhubarb patch that I remember quite vividly as well as the stewed rhubarb she made.

    Good luck with the new book.

    1. Thank you. Rhubarb is part of my family history too. My mother was raised by her uncle, and they had a row of rhubarb the whole length of their side yard. It was still there when I visited the uncle when I was in college.
